Reigning Wimbledon champion will begin the defence of his title against David Goffin of Belgium.

Murray, seeded third for the tournament, will take to Centre Court on the opening day on Monday for a first ever meeting with his 23-year-old opponent who is currently ranked 104th in the ATP rankings.

Murray's place in the top half of the draw ensures he will avoid no.1 Rafael Nadal until a potential final with the Spaniard at SW19.

Fresh off his eighth French Open title, Nadal opens against Martin Klizan before a potential second round clash with Lukas Rosol, the Czech who infamously eliminated the him at the same stage two years ago.

Top seed Novak Djokovic, who was forced to pull out of warm up match in South Bucks due to a minor injury scare on Thursday, will meet Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan in his opener before a possible second round meeting with Radej Stepanek, who eliminated Murray at the AEGON Championships last week.

The Serbian is on the same side of the draw as Murray, which means the two could meet in the semi-finals in a repeat of last year's final where Murray clinched his second grand slam.

Seven time champion Roger Federer faces an opening clash with Andrey Kuznetsov.

Murray became Britain's first Wimbledon male singles champion for 77 years in 2013.
